When a QGIS user has a MapInfo layer open in their QGIS project it is not possible for a MapInfo user to update that file on the network drive. It is also not possible to overwrite the MapInfo layer using windows file explorer. This appears to happen even when the map layer is not visible in QGIS and happens regardless of whether the file is in edit mode in QGIS. This is causing us real problems working in a mixed environment as our only solution at the moment is to ensure that all QGIS projects are closed while we update our MapInfo layers.
